Living Rent is looking for two community organisers to join our organisation in Glasgow and Edinburgh and fight for social and economic change. You will work closely with Living Rent’s members in Glasgow and Edinburgh, joining a growing team of Living Rent organisers in Scotland.
About the job: Your job is to build tenant power in order to challenge landlords collectively, not only bringing victories to members but also building a system that puts people before profit. The role will entail organising outreach events (door-knocking in blocks of flats, street stalls, community meetings), recruiting members, supporting the creation of neighbourhood organising teams, supporting members to organise direct actions and organising local events. This role aims to get more people involved in Living Rent at the local and national level, in order to build tenants’ power in Scotland. This job will first take place through online outreach, before switching back, when appropriate, to neighbourhood-based work.
We are looking for someone keen to work with a young organisation and passionate about member-run and diverse organisations and determined to build working-class power. Experience in recruitment, training delivery, community education or campaigns is welcome; however enthusiasm, willingness to learn and commitment to social justice are more important than previous experience as training will be provided. This role may suit someone with experience in sales, street fundraising or other customer facing work, and wishes to move into organising.
